So if you’re in the market for a multitool, you want to get the best right?
Well my friend, with hundreds of multitools to choose from out there, it’s honestly really hard to tell which ones are the best?
For me, I like multitools that not only have a wide variety of tools to choose from, but I like multitools that function without any force.
I’ve been through many multitools throughout my military career, so I do have my personal favorites and know which ones work best.
In this little review I wrote up for you today, I will be letting you know what the Gerber Diesel Multi-Plier has to offer, and if it’s really worth the money in my opinion.
So without further ado, lets get right into things here!
Gerber Diesel Multi-Plier
Gerber Diesel Multi-Plier Overview
To get things kicked off here, the Gerber Diesel does have 15 different tools in total you could choose from.
It’s a multitool that has a true one-hand deployment, simply meaning you could open it with one hand without dropping what’s in your other hand just to get the pliers or whatnot out.
Now to access the tools on the Gerber Diesel, you have to open the pliers before you could take out any of the tools, which could be a bummer for some people because they like to have tools easily accessible, but I find it something that’s not too big of a deal.
The tools you will be able to find on the Gerber Diesel are as follows:
- Wire Cutters
- Partially Serrated Knife
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- 3 Different Sizes Of Flathead Screwdrivers
- Can Opener
- Bottle Opener
The multitool weighs about 8.6 ounces and the dimensions are 9 x 5.5 x 2.4 inches, which really isn’t a lot to be carrying around and is pretty compact.
Some multitools I carried around in the past felt like a little brick, but you will not have that feeling with the Gerber Diesel.
That’s a little brief overview of the Gerber Diesel!
The Price For The Diesel
If you wanted to pick up a Gerber Diesel of your own, you could find it on Amazon for $44.99 (as of 06/23/18 – MST).
It’s not that bad of a price and I feel you really get what you pay for.
Personally I really love all the Gerber gear, but of course not every product from these big companies shine above the rest.
One other multitool I really enjoy and have on my EDC, is the Leatherman Wave Plus.
But on another note, if you’re on a budget and looking to pick up an affordable multitool built with good quality, then the Gerber Diesel will do great for you.
Is It Worth The Money?
If you want my personal opinion, I would say that the Gerber Diesel is worth the money.
The only gripe I have with the product is the pliers being a little to flimsy.
At times when I use it to tighten down my gear or whatnot, it feels like it’s going to snap when I apply too much pressure.
Lets just say that the pliers aren’t meant for extreme work, but it will help you handle the little tasks.
Overall, I feel the Gerber Diesel Multi-Plier is worth the money, just for the fact the price isn’t up there like other multitools.
When you do get your Gerber Diesel, it does come with its own nylon sheath so you could store it and carry it on your belt loop if need be.
The bottom line here is, whichever multitool you get that I’ve mentioned in this review, you will be satisfied with your purchase.
It all boils down to your budget, and what you’re really looking to have in your multitool.
Personally, I collect all types of gadgets and multitools, so I’m constantly building up my collection while sharing what these products really have to offer with my audience.
